Review and Discuss the “Participant and Host Family Questionnaire”
Keeping an open line of communication with your hosted participant from the moment they arrive is a great way to get to know them and discuss topics you didn't even know needed discussion. It is also an important tool to preventing misunderstandings that may arise because of cultural differences.
To assist you in this important task, we have developed The Participant and Host Family Questionnaire.
Please note that it is a REQUIREMENT of the U.S. Department of State that some of the information contained in this questionnaire is relayed to the hosted participant shortly after their arrival. We therefore ask you to review the questionnaire with your hosted participant within a few days of arrival and again a month or so later to ensure that your hosted participant fully understands the topics covered.
